Cerium is a soft, ductile, malleable metal which is very reactive in air or water, belonging to the lanthanide group. Cerium is also the most abundant of the rare earth elements, making up about 0.0046% of the earth’s crust.
Atomic number: 58
Atomic weight: 140.116
Element category: lanthanide
Application of cerium
Chemical oxidizing agent, polishing powder, yellow colors in glass and ceramics, catalyst for self-cleaning ovens, fluid catalytic cracking catalyst for oil refineries, ferrocerium flints for lighters. Cerium is often used in the pyrophoric ferrocerium alloy used for lighter flints. It also can be used as a component for the carbon electrodes of arc lamps which are used in the motion industry.

REE has been widely used in electronics, petrochemical, metallurgy, machinery, energy, environmental protection, agriculture. Rare Earth can be used to produce fluorescent materials, rare earth hydride battery materials, electric light materials, magnetic materials, hydrogen storage materials, catalytic materials, precision ceramic materials, laser materials, superconducting materials, magnetostrictive materials, magnetic refrigeration materials, optical storage materials, optical fiber materials.
The following abbreviations are often used:
• RE = rare earth
• REM = rare earth metals
• REE = rare earth elements
• REO = rare earth oxides
• REY = rare earth elements and yttrium
• LREE = light rare earth elements (Sc, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm, Sm, Eu, and Gd; also known as the cerium group)
• HREE = heavy rare earth elements (Y, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, and Lu; also known as the yttrium group)
Edgetech Industries LLC presents you with high purity REE products and good service, the mainly products are Scandium, HREE (yttrium group).
